Federal CIO


Vacant; Maria Roat, acting

The Federal CIO position hasn’t been held in an official capacity on a long-term basis since Suzette Kent left government last July. Since then, the role has mostly been filled in an acting capacity by Maria Roat, deputy Federal CIO. And for a few weeks at the conclusion of the Trump administration, Basil Parker held the role officially, but it’s unclear what he actually did during that time in the position. As the Biden administration took office, Parker left and Roat took over again in an acting capacity.
